The Underlying Offset Controller allows the user to increase Metro’s functionality with regard to offsets. The widget allows users to setup the expiry or root future for each option month and easily set the corresponding future month’s offset based on future settlements, implied prices or listed spreads. Additionally users have the ability to easily override the offset value before publishing.
This provides the user with a centralized application to configure and update offsets for all their products rather than having to adjust offsets manually in the model settings of Trade Sheets.
Note that this widget is not meant to replace Trade Sheets or Metro Product portfolio settings, but instead extend its functionality.
